1. – Marilyn Horne, Carmen Jones, 1954. The soloist with (what became) the Los Angeles Master Chorale, quit recording Dorothy Dandridge’s arias because of director Otto Preminger’s stupid bullying. Although he  was a singer as well as Dandridge, Harry Belafonte was dubbed by LeVern Hutcherson. Aged 19, Horne was paid a mere $300.
